Winner of the Films of Conflict and Resolution Award from the Hamptons International Film Festival, this character-driven documentary follows five kids and families over the course of a school year. Offering insight into different facets of America's bullying crisis, the stories include two families who have lost children to suicide and a mother awaiting the fate of her 14-year-old daughter, who has been incarcerated after bringing a gun on her school bus. The documentary provides an intimate and often shocking glimpse into homes, classrooms, cafeterias and principals' offices. Rated PG-13.

Discussion will be led by Appleton Area School District panelists including: Gary Mulry, Positive Behavior and Support Specialist; Jean Herron, School Counselor; and Tanya Fenner, School Teacher.
